AUX belts done 30000km ago - should I do them again?

Hi there, I am in the process of getting ready for a timing belt change and was going to do the aux belt and tensioners as well. However I was looking through the previous owners receipts and I noticed that he did the belts 30,000 kms ago and 3 years. What are peoples thoughts on whether or not I should do them now?

THe car is a 1999 156 2L TS

I wouldn't bother. The aux belt tensioner is around £100 for the part, my mechanic said chances are you only will ever have to do it once. My tensioner started to go at 110,000 miles, I was getting the third cam belt on then so I got them to replace it. It'd never had one before, and the mechanic said I probably wouldn't ever need another.
